Question about Maytag MAV6457 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag agitator will not turn

I have a 2004 MAV6457AWW Maytag washing machine. Spin cycle works great, no crazy noise or anything. However when the agitator runs on wash and rinse cycle it will not turn with clothes in it. Empty it turns for the most part. It is also making a grinding noise. Like a stripped bolt maybe? Please help!

sounds like you have a tub seal problem, which took out the bearings, I take it one buzy mom does lots of laundry! Maybe time for a new washer.

SOURCE: Washing machine won't agitate

it sounds like the transmission is shot. Not knowing the cost of parts if you can replace the transmission yourself then yes it could be worth fixing however if you can't do the job yourself adding cost of parts and labor it may not be worth it

In this case it seems that the main bearings on the shaft is a suspect. However if you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html

Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.


I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.

Maytag washer will not spin


If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.
